Panorama of Sunrise Seen From Cascade Mountain
The best of the sunrise panos thus far. I think I'll be able to put a second one together with the alpen glow to the west.
I'm never happy with actual sunrise panos, and really the best panos I take usually are pre and post sunset, or mid day. I think the rapidness of the changing light is tough to capture rapidly enough. And combine that with the inability to use split ND filters and you have a mess.
However, standing on a winter summit, in the dark, handling metal and small dials isn't all that appealing, at least when the sun comes up you get to warm up fast. I didn't realize till it was time to change SD cards that my finger tips had no feeling whatsoever, however, I was never cold otherwise in the calm (fairly calm) summit breeze.
